Since I have 2 800x480 devices handy, I took a screenshot of the old and new menu layouts. It looks like some of the icons previously under 'Navigate to...' and 'Find...' have migrated to the main menu and the Night mode switch went to Preference. The map view looks to be the same as before though.
